"Northeast Asia is now a central arena to determine the future of nuclear safety and security. The Fukushima nuclear accident, and its ongoing aftermath, is at the forefront of the debate over the utility of nuclear energy in resolving global issues of climate change and energy security. And North Korea’s headlong rush towards acquisition of nuclear weapons and delivery systems has sparked talk of going nuclear in both South Korea and China and discussion over how to provide extended deterrence, including the role of missile defense."

Review:
When diplomats stationing in a local city like San Francisco talk about national and international issues such as nuclear safety and security, all you can expect is what may be called "diplomatic talks." It was no exception this time, as the three diplomats claimed that their governments were doing their best in achieving "nuclear safety and security" by cooperating among the three countries, even in dealing with the "trust deficit" issue about nuclear safety and the "North Korea" issue about nuclear security.
Whenever they had to mention some unresolved problems, the key word "challenge" was used to avoid admission of inabilities or even failures in addressing such problems.
It turned out to be so obviously "diplomatic," when the three deputy consuls responded to the question from the floor, asking how their governments are dealing with the public's strong opposition to nuclear power, that is, the problem of seemingly increasing trust deficit: the Korean deputy consul said something like "educating people," and the Japanese deputy consul emphasized "dialogue with the public," while the Chinese deputy consul somewhat surprisingly that "the government listens and can change its mind in building nuclear plants," although that could happen only in some neighborhoods, but certainly not for the nation as a whole, as the Chinese diplomat himself initially presented that there were 27 nuclear power plants currently in operation, and 25 more under construction, which looks like a very aggressive pro-nuclear power policy.
Prof. Lipscy raised an interesting point regarding the possible implications of changing political atmosphere and shifting public opinions in the US regarding nuclear proliferation in Asia, but unfortunately there was no response from any panelist or even from the floor. Probably, we need another round of panel discussion, preferably by specialists, on such an issue.

「シリコンバレー詣で」をする人のための必読書」: TM
その本の価値は、それがターゲットとする読者を特定しなければ決まらない。本書は主に最近急増している「シリコンバレー詣で」をする日本人、特にビジネス大学、役所などの関係者に向けて書かれていると思われる。そのような人たちが必ずといってよいほど訪れるスタンフォード大で受け入れの窓口の役割を果たしているのが、著者に他ならないからである。
その視点からいえば、本書はシリコンバレー訪問のための必読書といえる。しかも単なる入門書ではなく、日本にいては見落としがちなシリコンバレー成功のポイントの指摘が随所でなされている。例えば、第1章にある「スケールしないビジネスは生き残れない」は、スケールという概念の重要性を理解しない日本企業への警告である。
そのようなコンテキストから、本書の価値を決めるのは何と言っても最新の動向と具体例に基づいて著者が強く感じている提言を集めた第5章「日本企業がこれからすべきこと」であろう。シリコンバレーで生き残り成功するために最低限必要なもの、それはシリコンバレー流の「オープンイノベーション」であり、「人脈」であり、「トップのコミット」であり、「デザイン思考」であることを、日本企業や起業家の実名入りの具体例で説明している結論部分は圧巻であり、これまで日本語で書かれたシリコンバレーに関するどの著書や資料よりも価値の高いものであるといえる。
